Tickets are on sale for the not-to-be-missed 2016 Premier’s Harmony Dinner, Minister for Multiculturalism John Ajaka said.

The Premier’s Harmony Dinner will be held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on 10 March 2016.

“The Premier’s Harmony Dinner is always a sensational event. Filled with colour and music, it is a fitting celebration of the enormous contribution made by multicultural communities right across NSW. Tickets will be in high demand, so go online and get your tickets today,” Mr Ajaka said.

In 2015, more than 1,400 guests including community leaders, corporate and business leaders, Members of Parliament, non-government organisations and representatives from the media attended.

On the night, the Premier will present the Multicultural Community Medals which honour achievements across categories for community harmony, youth, lifetime community service, arts and culture, regional communities, and economic participation.

The 2015 Medal Winner of the Harmony Award Nalika Priyadharshi Padmasena was recognised for her work helping women to speak about domestic violence and educating them of their legal rights.

“The recognition of grassroots contributions by people who are unknown to others is paramount because we all have a role to play in sharing responsibility, leading by example, providing guidance and assistance while engaging our community leaders,” Ms Padmasena said.

In addition to the Medals, the Multicultural Honour Roll will also be presented– an award that permanently records the names and achievements of significant migrant pioneers.

The dinner and awards are part of Multicultural March, a program of activities across the state that showcase our cultural diversity and complement Harmony Day events on 21 March.
